Stomp is one of many shows that have become a staple of the West End, having played at the Ambassadors Theatre for many years. It just wouldn’t be Theatreland without it and with that in mind it’s no wonder audiences continue to flock to see it live!
Stomp is a stunning piece of visual theatre which features a unique ‘street band’ that create amazing sounds and rhythms from everyday or ‘street’ items. These include dustbins, matchboxes, brooms, tin cans, hubcaps and even steel capped workboots! You name it they play it!
The cast of Stomp has featured some of our best known celebrities such as Angus Deayton, Dawn French and Lenny Henry. It has also included many famous US entertainers such as Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jackson, Lauren Bacall and Bruce Willis to name but a few.
Stomp was first created by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas in 1991 and was the culmination of more than ten years hard work. This partnership first met back in 1981 as part of critically acclaimed street band ‘Pookiesnackenburger’. This idiosyncratic band is best known for a series of television adverts back in the 1980s.
They came together and in 1991 Stomp was born. Over the years since it has appeared in various different locations, from London to Hong Kong, and has also had very different stage step-ups around the world. So whilst the original line-up only had a few members, this rose exponentially for the production that appeared on Broadway to big success.
In 2002, Stomp appeared in London and is still running strong. It is a truly amazing piece of performance art and one that combines the very best of dance, sound, comedy and technical agility with brilliant choreography.
Today Stomp manages to attract crowds to the Ambassadors Theatre in London’s West End and as it has been playing for such a long time there is no doubt that it will remain a staple of the capital for some time to come.
A show not to be missed! Thankfully, you can still catch it at the Ambassadors Theatre.
